You know if unswerving warm-mongers Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) are telling you it’s going to get cold then you best pop-on an additional pullover and chop an extra “cord” of wood.
According to ECCC forecasts, the Northwest Territories (NWT) are set for “colder-than-average” temperatures during the upcoming winter, a phenomenon they’re blaming on recent switch from El Niño to La Niña.
“Coming into a La Niña winter for Western Canada generally means that winters will be colder than average and snowier than average,” explains ECCC meteorologist Terri Lang.
“Patterns are often much stronger for the Prairies and British Columbia and not as strong for the NWT, but people should be aware of colder-than-average (temperatures) with more snow than average and should definitely prepare.”
The run-up to winter 2020 has been a unusually cold one across the vast 1,144,000 km2 (442,000 sq mi) territory.
The NWT’s month of September averaged-out at 6.7C (44F), a reading comfortably below the 30-year norm of 7.2C (45F).
It was also a relatively dry month, with 27.2mm (1.07 inches) of precipitation falling, compared to the average of 36.3mm (1.43 inches).
October temperatures started mild but then took a sharp plunge mid-month.
As visualized in the Yellowknife, NT chart (shown below), “global warming” was most-definitely in charge for the first 10 days of the month, but “weather” quickly ensued thereafter and lingered for the final 21 days:
According to Lang, October temperatures averaged at -1.8C (28.8F), which, again, was below the historical norm.
The month was another dry one, too. The 13.2 mm (0.52 inches) of precipitation was well down on the seasonal average of 30.3 mm (1.19 inches) — this made the month the 11th driest on record, based on 75 years record keeping.
Colder temps continued into November, with the coldest point coming on the morning of Remembrance Day when the mercury sank to 29.3C (-21F).
Also worth noting is that the year 2020 was unprecedentedly slow at warming-up. Saturday, April 18 provided the city’s first “warm” temperature of the year: a high of just 1.7C (35F). In no other year in Yellowknife’s history has it taken that long to reach a maximum high that pathetic, with weather records going back to 1943.
And now, with the winter months almost upon us –and in an embarrassing yet unchallenged contradiction of their original forecasts– Environment and Climate Change Canada are now warning of a “colder-than-average-winter,” with meteorologist Terri Lang urging: “[people] should definitely prepare.”
Well, better late than never I suppose…
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
